Ella in Middletown, PA

Update 1-31-23: We’ve received several promising applications for this pup so aren’t taking more for now. Thank you!

Ella is wonderful 5 year old beauty born 12/28/2017 that only wants to love and be loved. She will follow you everywhere looking for a chance to sit in your lap or snuggle up beside you. She came into Rescue because her family could not keep up with her chronic ear infections and scratching.

In foster care her yeasty ear infection has been resolved and we have made adjustments to her diet and environment. Her ears are now clear and swelling is gone. Her scratching is now no more than any normal dog scratching. It is recommended that she does not live with a cat because of dander intolerance. While in rescue Ella was allergy tested for food and environmental triggers. We will give her new family the report, but some examples of allergens include canola oil, apples, strawberries, corn and wool. It’s very important that her family monitors ingredients in her food as well as her environment due to allergies and sensitivities.

Ella does get along with her small to medium foster dog friends, but we have noticed that she is shy around very large dogs. She definitely prefers to be with people though, so it would not be a problem if she is an only dog in your family.

Ella is perfectly housetrained and will go to the door to tell you whenever she needs to go outside. She can be trusted to be loose in the house for short periods of time if needed. She is also crate trained and will sleep quietly all night, but she would much prefer to be in bed with you! She rides nicely in the car in a crate but she does prefer to be in the doggie car seat. She also knows basic commands. Sit, Down, and Come and she walks nicely on leash.

Ella LOVES mealtime and treat time! She is currently at 17 lbs has already lost 1 pound in foster care and is working on losing another pound or 2. So don’t melt into those eyes when she begs for more!!

If you think you would be a good match for Ella, please complete our online application if you haven’t already and then email Melissa MacMullin (cavalierrescueusapa@gmail.com) and let her know you want to be considered for Ella. We prefer that you lived within a reasonable driving distance of Middletown, PA.

Rosie in Bridgewater, NJ

Here is Rosie with her new family…

My name is Rosie, and I am a fun loving girl who is seeking the most amazing forever family!

What I am looking for in a family is both two-legged and four-legged members, as I love both and would thrive best in this type of setting. I love to play with toys and bark at them, especially when they squeak back at me. I am great at walking on a leash but enjoy my foster family’s fenced in yard so I can run free. I also enjoy car rides too. I also do love a good snack and enjoy my food. I am a bigger gal (if you couldn’t tell from my pictures) who has started her health journey to trim up a bit. You see, I was a mommy for a while and now that I am retired, I want to be the healthiest girl I can be. My foster family has been spoiling me with some scrumptious meals so my hope is that my new family will want to spoil me too. And since I have been around dogs my whole life, I really want to be in a home with other dogs for companionship. I have been enjoying the company of other dogs in my foster home. I am not cat tested. 

I recently had a dental cleaning and spay in December. While I did lose a good amount of teeth, that hasn’t slowed me down at all. I do have a mild heart murmur however it doesn’t require any medication at this time. Additionally, I am up to date on all my vaccinations, am microchipped and housetrained. 

I am not afraid to use my voice to get your attention for a belly rub, a pet, throw a toy to me, to go outside or even a treat. I am not shy once I get to know you. I am great at climbing stairs and can go up and down a full flight of stairs (13 to be exact) with no issue. And I do love to get pampered and relax on the couch when my foster family is watching TV. My foster family describes me as mild, sweet, lovable, cuddly, easy to care for, and a delight to have as a house guest. When we make eye contact, my tail is already responding with excitement. I am a pretty good listener too – call my name and I will come to you!

Let’s talk sleeping arrangements. While I do have my own sleeping quarters with my foster family, I would absolutely enjoy being with you all night long where we can share the bed.

If you are looking for a sweet, smart and fun loving girl and you live in close proximity to her foster family’s location, please  fill out our online application if you haven’t already and then email NJ Coordinator Rebecca Plimpton at beckplimpton@gmail.com expressing your interest in Rosie.

Autumn in Middletown, PA

Update 1-23-23: We’ve received several promising applications for this pup so aren’t taking more for now. Thank you!

Hello! My name is Autumn and I am 9 year old Blenheim girl born 7/2/13 who loves to snuggle. I came into rescue when my human mom was having baby #2 and now I would love to find my forever home.

I like to go on walks and do well with a leash, but need more practice wearing my harness. I like to play “fetch” and “keep away” with my toys and will enter a tough game of “tug” with you as well as “fetch”. I do know a few simple commands of “sit; lay down; and roll over”. I can be a bit shy and timid in new places and situations so more socialization would help me overcome my shyness. One of my favorite pastimes is to look out the window and bark at those pesky birds and squirrels that may invade my home.


I am a snuggler and love to be close to my humans. My favorite thing in the whole world is to snuggle up on the couch. I am not a fan of car rides and cry. I am going on more rides to get use to this but need some extra help from my new family to make car rides fun for me. I was in a home with a cat and we got along good. I have been to visit some homes with dogs in them and my shyness really came out when they got near me. I would do best in an only dog home as I need more time to find myself. Small children can be a bit scary for me as they move fast!

I will signal when I need to go out and I am fully housebroken. I may only have 4 teeth, but I can eat my dry food very well and soft treats are great! I am a healthy weight at 14 pounds. I do have a grade 2 heart murmur, but no medication is needed. 

If you think I would be a good addition to your home, please send in an application if you haven’t already got one on file and then contact Melissa MacMullin at cavalierrescueusapa@gmail.com.

Amara in Mechanicsburg, PA

Here is Amara with her new mom…

Looking for the perfect canine companion? One that is sweet, quiet, affectionate and most important of all, house trained? Amara is your girl. Amara’s sweet nature is all the more remarkable considering she spent her first 6-7 years as a breeding dog. She was turned over to rescue and is now looking for a home of her very own.

Her journey in foster care has been a long one. A few months into her foster care, she started scratching and licking. Soon her beautiful hair was mostly gone on her belly and rear legs. After a lot of trial and error, it was determined that she is allergic to chicken. She is now on a high quality gently cooked dog food with pork as the protein. She is doing very well, her itches are gone and the hair is growing back.

She has been perfect in her foster home from the very first moment she came through the door. She loves going for rides, walks well on a leash, loves kids of all ages and dogs of all sizes. She is crate trained but prefers to sleep at night in a dog bed on the floor in her foster parents bedroom. She sleeps all night and is not an early riser. This well traveled girl has been to the garden store, the hairdresser, pet store and the vets office. She greets everyone and everything with a wagging tail. There are two funny quirks:  Occasionally she will drag her bed around the room and she really loves tea towels. She will pull the towel off the oven door handle and find a spot to chew it. They are now tied to the oven door handles and she has let them completely alone. As noted above, she is reliably house trained and has had no accidents in her foster home. Chasing the birds and squirrels around the yard are her specialty, but she needs a securely fenced yard. Amara is a bit of a Houdini. If the yard has aluminum fencing, it will need to be modified because she can fit through the bars.

She enjoys the company of her three foster sisters, but would also be fine as an only dog. Her biggest wish is to be in her persons lap. If she is not able to be in your lap, she will be at your feet, gazing into your eyes. She still has some skittish moments. She does not like to be picked up and sudden loud noises will startle her. However, with love and patience, she should get over this. Because she had such a difficult start in life, she really needs to be placed in a home with someone home most of the day. A quiet home without child would probably be best for her.

Amara is in great health and is a healthy weight at 14 pounds. She was spayed and had a dental while in foster care. Her allergy issues seem to be under control. She was prescribed Apoquel, but has not had to take it recently. She does not have a heart murmur or any other health problems.

Amara is a pretty, sweet tricolor girl who had a very difficult beginning to her life. Even after all she has had to go through, she still is one of the most loving dogs we have ever seen. Please consider adding her to your family.

If you think you would be a good match for Amara and you live within a reasonable driving distance of Mechanicsburg, PA please make sure you have an current application on file and reach out to Melissa MacMullin (cavalierrescueusapa@gmail.com)  to let her know of your interest.

Simon in Mt. Airy, MD

Update 1-27-23: We’ve received several promising applications for this pup so aren’t taking more for now. Thank you!

Simon says that he is ready to meet his new family! He is 11 months old, born 2/13/22, and would love to share his first birthday next month with his forever family. Simon came to Cavalier Rescue USA from his owner who knew that he was spending too many hours at home alone during the day and that he needed more opportunities and space to be active. Simon has done well with his foster family and has learned a lot while getting to go everywhere that they go. He just took a trip to the beach to celebrate the New Year!

Simon is larger than a typical Cavalier, he is a tall boy and he weighs about 28 pounds. He is very playful and needs an active family. He would do well with a family who is home often and plans to take him places frequently or a family with another playful dog(s). He has done well with his two Cavalier foster sisters; however, he ALWAYS wants to play so he will need a dog sibling who does well with playful puppy energy.

Simon is looking for a family with previous dog experience because he still needs some work with socialization. He is cautious when meeting new people and he often barks because he is unsure of people that he does not know. As a puppy working on socialization, he will occasionally try to nip if he is put into an uncomfortable situation. He has worked very hard on this with his foster family and he has made a lot of improvement. Now he needs a family who is willing to take time to gain his trust and continue moving forward with his training and socialization. He has bonded well with every member of his foster family. He is a quick learner and he is VERY food motivated! 

He is completely house trained and crate trained. He has always had long daily walks and does extremely well walking on a leash. He is reactive when passing other dogs, but his foster family is using clicker training and he is improving!  A family with a daily walking routine would definitely be a plus for Simon. He has also learned that he LOVES a big backyard to run and chase his ball.     

He was recently neutered and is overall a healthy boy. However, his future family will need to be willing to monitor his skin. While in foster care he was treated for a dermatitis infection with antibiotics and medicated baths. His skin has improved, however since he is still a puppy this is something that will need to be monitored as there is a chance that it could be allergy related.   

Simon’s foster family has really enjoyed having him and is excited to help him find the perfect family! If you think you are the right home for Simon please complete our online application if you haven’t already and then email Nancy at npersinger@frontier.com to let her know that you are interested.

Paris in Albany, NY

All dogs need love. Some need more love than others. This little girl came to us through a relative who recognized that she showed signs of neglect. The initial vet exam confirmed that story. Her original name is Paris, but we’ve nicknamed her Little Girl. She is about 7-8 years old.

She came to us very quiet and reserved but she has gradually opened up and become very sweet and quickly became very attached to her foster mom. So far she has struggled trusting anyone else, but she is only just starting to show her true personality. She is getting stronger and healthier, likes her baths and loves treats, and walks well on a leash. Everyday she seems to get a little bit happier and now is starting to wag her tail in that happy Cavalier way! She will be very happy sharing the couch and cuddling with her new family.

Our “Little Girl” needs a quiet home with someone who is gentle and patient and experienced with dealing with some behavior issues. She’s tolerant of other animals, but not interested in playing yet.

When we first heard her name was Paris we thought, oh boy, a Prima Donna! But nothing could be farther from the truth. She’s a sweet girl who deserves a chance to have a great life. And we know the only way to get there is with lots and lots of love.
